It’s Friday! Time to let everything go and reward yourself for surviving the week.

Here are links to ten free eBook romances from a sampling of websites and subgenres to relax with over the weekend. Some are newer, some are older print books offered free in eBook format. Still others are short little bites that are probably meant as a way to introduce readers to an author.

I’ve only had the chance to read My Soul to Lose, which I liked, so I’ll be interested to hear what you think. Is free fiction still good fiction?

Books are listed in order of length, shortest to longest.
